Twenty-one years after having his prophetic auditory hallucination of William Blake reading "Ah! Sunflower" and "The Sick Rose" in his East Harlem flat, Allen Ginsberg recorded his own version of Blake's "songs" set to a dreamy score (with loving contributions from Peter Orlovsky, Don Cherry, Bob Dorough, Jon Sholle and others).

Today being Ginsberg's 83rd birthday, Mining the Audio Motherlode is celebrating by linking to a download of this 1969 album – along with nine other gems.

Why Do You Think They Call It Twit?

without comments

DearLeader  There's no denying it: I've always been gullible. Really, really gullible. I don't know why. I'm not stupid, technically, but I am a very literal person. I take everything really literally, so maybe that has something to do with it. Anyway, I was totally thrilled when I heard that Kim Jong Il was on Twitter. I mean, of course I figured it could be a prank, but I read that one of his tweets said, "National defense is the sacred duty of the young and all other people," and I thought, you know, it could really be him. So I signed up for Twitter just so I could follow Kim Jong Il. And then some of his other tweets said, like, "I'm restarting my nuclear reactor and there is nothing you can do about it," and--my favorite one--"Bitches need to stop spreading lies. My satellite launch was successful," which reminded me of that guy Herbert Kornfeld who used to write the column in the Onion, and made me laugh, but also made me feel pretty dumb. 'Cause, you know, now I kinda doubt that it's really Kim Jong Il.

Warmest regards go out this week to the Miner's all-time musical hero and guru Yusef Lateef, who has just been awarded—along with seven others—a Jazz Masters Fellowship by the National Endowment for the Arts. The recognition carries with it a one-time grant of $25,000 which is no small perk for any working musician, let alone a vital improviser, composer and educator, who's career is now stretching into its seventh decade.

There are no Yusef Lateef discs among this week's offerings, but there are many dozens of astounding recordings of his to seek out. (The Miner recommends "Yusef Lateef's Nigeria," "Psychicemotus" and "Yusef's Mood: The Complete 1957 Sessions" to start.)

A CAMP (f/ Nina Persson of the Cardigans) LIVE tonight – with HD Video!

without comments

Wow, you know, every once in a while, things really just turn out pretty awesome, like this performance from A Camp that will air tonight on Sound and Safe.  Four perfectly-rendered pop songs - including a cover of Eddie Noack's weird and wonderful "Psycho" - done by my favorite singer in the world, Nina Persson, with husband Nathan Larson (of Shudder to Think) on bass, and Niclas Frisk (of Atomic Swing) on guitar.

We got some really nice HD video of the songs - check out a preview here, for the song "Love Has Left the Room." 

Thanks very much to Tim Smith and Jacqueline Castel for shooting the video.

Tune in tonight to hear all four songs and to see all four videos.  Also keep an eye on the Free Music Archive for MP3s of the set.

A Camp kicks off a North American tour at Bowery Ballroom tomorrow night.  Their new album Colonia is out now.

10 Favorite Downloads from the MP3 Blogosphere

The Miner was saddened to learn this week of the April 27 death of painter Philip Stein. Longtime assistant to, and biographer of, Mexican social-realist muralist David Alfaro Siqueiros, Stein's most famous work has been viewed by patrons in the world's most famous jazz club for the past 40 years. At the request of his brother-in-law Max Gordon, Estaño (as his mentor dubbed him) painted a vibrant, enigmatic three-panel canvas for the back wall in Gordon's Greenwich Village nightspot the Village Vanguard.

Estano

Completed in 1968, this untitled work wasn't Stein's only connection to jazz. He began collecting 78s as a kid and later produced a couple of records by Dixieland trombonist Big Chief Russell Moore. In the 1980s, Stein moved to Spain where he continued to paint and hosted a jazz radio program. Philip Stein was 90.

Horndogs Rejoice! – Sexlab Cometh

without comments

Sexlab-600 Have you ever wanted to ask a WFMU radio personality about cunnilingus technique, clitoral stimulation, anal doucheing or "the helicopter"? Yeah, maybe not. But this Friday you'll have your chance anyway, when Sexlab hits the Web waves.

Conceived in a hailstorm of double entendres by our illustrious Queen of Friday Nights, Pseu "Honey Pot" Braun, and gestated in a dong-shaped space station by Pseu and her colleagues / co-researchers Mark "ASS9000" Allen and myself, Wm. "Money Shot" Berger, Sexlab is designed to hold your, um, "hand" and glide you into this new century of suckin' and fuckin'.

While Dave Mandl fills in for Pseu at our FM frequencies and on the regular Web stream, Sexlab will be streaming (with volume AND distance!) at an alternate Web feed accessible at wfmu.org. As Mark says, "online only, because in the Internet the FCC can't hear you curse."

And me? I started rubbing it to Morticia Addams when I was eight years old, and I haven't looked back since. I've been told more than once that I have an "enthusiasm," a certain bonus zeal for the sex act, so hopefully my life of gradual transition from hyper-libidinous man-slut to happily monogged married man will be of service to someone. And my colleagues, well they're unrepentantly horny bastards, too. Either way, Pseu, Mark and I can pretty much guarantee it will be funny (and hopefully genuinely informative as well.)

Sexlab will be live on the Web, this Friday, May 22, from 8-11 p.m. ET. We'll be taking your calls at (201) 209–9368 (for those prone to jump the gun, store that load in your third eye and call us then, not before.) If you'd like to submit a question or suggest a discussion topic in advance (or during the broadcast), we've set up a special email address: asksexlab@wfmu.org

Beware of the Blog now on Kindle

without comments

Wfmu_kindleBeware of the Blog is now available on Amazon's Kindle. You can subscribe to it by going to this page though Amazon will charge you $1.99 for the subscription.

We would love to offer it for free but Amazon currently doesn't allow that as an option. The station gets 30% of the subscription fee which I suppose is still a better deal than being signed to a major label but much worse than the rumored split itunes gives for a song sold through itunes  (on a .99 cent track Apple supposedly keeps .34 cents and gives the content provider .55 cents). But nobody here wants to hear about the marginal costs of digital distribution, right? So subscribe away...

Now if they could only figure out how to make the mp3s and videos work...

This past January, the majestic tenor saxophonist David S. Ware released Shakti, his first studio recording in six years. Two weeks earlier, urgent news had come down that he was in dire need of a new kidney. Yesterday, following a successful search for a donor, David underwent transplant surgery and today he begins a three-month convalescence.

Dsw Unable to work during this period David has relied on donations to help cover expenses, and the fine people at his label, AUM Fidelity, have been coordinating a fund-raising effort.

If you choose to download any of the discs offered below — or if you've helped yourself to offerings in previous columns — then the Miner is requesting that you make a thoughtful donation to help a musician in need. Please go here for the details. Thanks.

Brown Paper Packages Tied Up with String

without comments

OandR Observe and Report. Dr. Colby has a way of rating movies on a scale of 0 to 12.5 dollars (because that's how much a movie ticket costs in Manhattan), and on that scale I give Observe and Report $25 because I liked it so much I saw it twice. The first time I went with DJ Kelly, and the nice ticket lady gave us tickets to Obsessed by mistake because she just could not believe that a couple of dames like us, out by ourselves on a Friday night, were there to see a dark, violent, completely incorrect comedy. (Which might describe Obsessed too, I guess, except that in that case it wouldn't be intentional.) On our way out of the theater, DJ Kelly stopped, considered carefully, and then said, "That was the most fucked-up thing I've ever seen." And she liked O&R.

So then I went to see it again with Sluggo, and he liked it too.

I'm not recommending this movie to anyone, though, because I can see how other people might not like it. Dr. Colby herself went to see it because I said it was good, and at first she gave it $2, but then she started adding a a little more here and there, like an extra $1 for the portrayal of the alcoholic mother, and she ended up giving it about $8 in the end. Still not a ringing endorsement. And if you're the sort of person who bursts into tears when someone says, like, "hospital clown" or something, you should not see it at all. But if you're curious about how a typical summer raunch-fest movie could strip away all the cliches and get down to the brutal rock-bottom awfulness of people's lives--and still be hilarious--this is the film for you. It's definitely the film for me--it might be my new favorite film ever.

Monk The Nytpicker. It's not Lies of Our Times, but it's short and funny and free. And a couple of days ago they figured out that New York Times is an anagram for Write, Monkey. (I put the comma in because it bothers me too much to leave it out.) It's at www.nytpick.com.

Swedes The Local—Sweden's News in English. I check out The Local whenever I can remember not to keep calling it The State. (I don't know why I do that.) I finally bookmarked it so it doesn't matter what I think it's called. Swedish news is pretty warped. Last year there was a happy article about all the shop-window Christmas displays that featured penises. And without their sports reporting, I would have been completely unaware of the fact that Sweden had a fantastic come-from-behind, sudden-death OT  6-5 victory over the U.S. in the World Ice Hockey Championships last week. In fact, I wouldn't have even known the World Ice Hockey Championships were happening, unless the U.S. had won, in which case it would have been on the front page of, like, the New York Times. And then Nytpicker would have found something wrong with it.  www.thelocal.se

Guam Numismaticism Update: The Guam quarter is out! Although I haven't seen one yet. But it features both the latte and the flying proa! And the Martin Van Buren gold-colored dollar is out, too, but, um ... you know. No flying proa there.

Thanks for reading my blogpost this time, and may God bless.

Mining the Audio Motherlode, Vol. 14 (MP3s)

without comments

Miner All of us here at Mining the Audio Motherlode want to extend a firm handshake (followed by quick Purell shpritz) to new Democratic senator Arlen Specter. With Specter deserting the sinking GOP, visions of gaining a filibuster-proof supermajority in the senate have us all aflutter. Nevertheless, thoughts of invoking cloture also brings up bitter reminders of the senate's inability over the course of decades to defeat Southern racist filibustering of nearly 200 anti-lynching bills.

How ironic is it, then, that on the same day and at the same U.S. Capitol building were Specter switched parties, a bust of crusading abolitionist Sojourner Truth was unveiled (by First Lady Michelle Obama)—making her the first African American woman so honored. An even richer irony took place four years ago, when the senate voted to officially apologize for failing to act on the lynching scourge. That resolution was introduced by two white Southern senators, one of whom, Mary Landrieu of Louisiana, invoked Billie Holiday's performance of "Strange Fruit" on the floor of the senate.

Billboard Magazine archives on Google Books

without comments

Books Just spent some time flipping through old issues of Billboard Magazine via Google Books. Turns out the goog has scanned and posted full issues of the magazine, dating all the way back to 1942.

Though it's mainly an industry mag, you'll find tons of gems like goofy old ads, lots of bad hair, an article about piracy/copyright in just about every other issue, anti smut campaigns throughout the ages, and a nice overall documentation of the rise and demise of the record industry.
